Epic FFXI 18 Hour Hard Boss Killed In One Minute!



- Back in August, we brought word of how tough beating Final Fantasy XI boss Pandemonium Warden was. Guild BeyondTheLimitation called it quits after 18 hours of combat against that boss. That was the only unnecessarily hard boss — Absolute Virtue has also been giving players headaches. Square Enix responded with a series of changes to the MMO "to prevent such battles from exceeding a certain predetermined length of time". A group of players brandishing super rare Kraken Club took down Absolute Virtue, the other impossible boss that supposedly takes 18 hours to kill, in like a minute. Hit the link for a clip of the take down, complete with Smashing Pumpkins.

So Basically what i gathered from XI gamers is a bunch of Dark Knights with haste builds Souleater Zerging Absolute Virtue. A Dark Knight's Souleater Zerg does an insane amount of direct damage in just a short amount of time.

Souleater = converts 10% of your hit points into direct damage for 45 seconds. They were also mostly using Gloom Breastplates that turns the 10% into 12% damage. They all used their 2 hour abilities called Blood Weapon which drains all dmg done by melee attacks into hit points for 30 seconds.

Using the two together creates a return loop of if you doing damage, eating your own Hit points, then Draining your hit points back for the next 30 seconds.

The Krakken club is a super rare item that will occasionally attack 2 to 8 times.

They had Bards give them haste as well as white mages cast the haste spell which will stack.

The end result is what you saw, a bunch of Dark Knights decked out with K.clubs and haste eating away at the monster.
A did see one guy using a Mercurial Kris, which has the same effect as the K.club.

so i guess it can be done...=D

haha well i dunno xD never played FFXI so i couldn't say for myself its real....but this was posted on a legit gamers sites so i trust that they check if it is at least real...
but as i explained...the strategy they are using has an attack heal thing going on...haha hard to explain...-_-
but yea....when u have that many players using the same technique...i see it possible to be an overkill...sure why not?..makes sense

but ill keep you posted if it ends up being fake ;D...like i said nvr played FFXI......

I play FFXI i'm a 75 whm on the siren server and i doubt that strategy actually worked but i won't say it's impossible... I mean kracken club + soul eater actually sounds like a good combo... however... when a dark knight uses soul eater it's EXTREMELY dangerous if they don't use it in the right circumstances... many drks on the game are basically commiting sucide with it =p it evens out if they had blood weapons however... there are still some stuff wrong with the vid... 1 the hp bar dropped like WAY too fast 2 drks wouldn't be able to hit it with clubs 3 AV has every 2 hr in the game if he used like perfect dodge which basically means every single hit misses for a certain time period (which basically means there would be some time during the fight that they could not hit the mob) and basically to sum it up there is a lot wrong with the vid making me think it's either tampered with or they were on a private server.. just my input lol don't mean to be a downer
